    number one priority.

    Because no child, no senior citizen, no new immigrant, no man or woman who is down on their luck should ever go hungry.

Nutrition Security

Colel Chabad, in partnership with the Joint Distribution Committee, has been designated by the Israeli Government to take charge of eliminating hunger among Israel's neediest.
